Democrats Vote On Important Stuff: Hair Discrimination

Because the interest groups which run the party care about this stuff, and, they need to patronize their base

House Democrats Vote on Alleged Anti-Hair Discrimination amid Ukraine Crisis, Rising Inflation

House Democrats voted on legislation on Friday that would combat alleged anti-hair discrimination while there remains a war in Ukraine and Americans grapple with soaring inflation and gas prices.

The House passed H.R. 2116, the Creating a Respectful and Open World for Natural Hair (CROWN) Act of 2021, 235-189.

Democrats overwhelmingly supported the legislation, and Republicans opposed the bill.

The legislation would prohibit alleged discrimination based on a person’s hair texture or hairstyle that is commonly associated with a particular race or national origin.

As Republicans pointed out, federal law already prohibits discrimination, but, you know, Democrats Are Serious People. The best part is “alleged discrimination”, which actually appears in the text of the bill. In other words, all it would take is someone having a feeling. They wouldn’t need to prove anything.

“Black women are 1.5X more likely to be sent home from work because of their hair. Discrimination against Black women and girls because of their natural hair is far too common in our workplaces and schools. I’m proud to sponsor the #CROWNAct, which would ban this racist practice,” Rep. Bonnie Watson Coleman (D-NJ) wrote.

Well, if they aren’t in compliance with company policies, yeah.

Rep. Dan Bishop (R-NC) said on the House floor ahead of the vote that the CROWN Act may prevent employers from regulating hairstyles for safety purposes.

It may mean that employers will pass on hiring women who’s hair could be a problem within existing corporate policy.


(a) Prohibition.—It shall be an unlawful employment practice for an employer, employment agency, labor organization, or joint labor-management committee controlling apprenticeship or other training or retraining (including on-the-job training programs) to fail or refuse to hire or to discharge any individual, or otherwise to discriminate against an individual, based on the individual’s hair texture or hairstyle, if that hair texture or that hairstyle is commonly associated with a particular race or national origin (including a hairstyle in which hair is tightly coiled or tightly curled, locs, cornrows, twists, braids, Bantu knots, and Afros).

But, they’ll have to prove it. It’ll mean lots of black women will be passed over for jobs.

    If you are hiring for a ‘front’ position, in which your employee meets the public, you will very naturally want someone who is at least not disgusting in appearance, someone whose appearance does not detract from your business, and a person with a stupid hairstyle can detract from your business.

    If you are hiring for a business in which the employee will be working with or around certain types of machinery, the employee cannot have hair which can get caught in moving parts. While you can require a head covering which restrains the hair, that also puts the business in at least some danger of the employee disregarding the head covering requirement, or later suing, thanks to this idiot bill, that he’s being discriminated against because his dreads are a statement of his racial and ethnic pride.

    If you are hiring roofers or concrete finishers, such concerns become minimal, unless the hairstyle in question prevents the proper wearing of a hard hat.

    Of course, we all know that the more attractive a person is, the more likely it is that he will be conservative, so in attempting to protect the weirdos, the left are trying to protect themselves.

  2. The United States Army only recently allowed female soldiers to wear their hair below their collars, as long as it is restrained back in a ponytail or braids, something the American military was much slower to adopt than most foreign militaries.

    BUt the obvious question becomes: does this proposed legislation contain an exemption for the military, allowing the armed services to maintain and enforce reasonable restrictions on hair?

  3. Elwood P. Dowd says:

    The researchers found that Republican voters care more about appearance than Democratic voters do, but only if the voters don’t have much information about the candidates and have to rely largely on appearance.

    But in elections that give voters a lot of information politicians’ appearance matters equally to voters regardless of party or ideology.

    In low-information elections, a beauty increase of one standard deviation attracts about 20 percent more votes for the average candidate on the right and about 8 percent more votes for the average candidate on the left, the study finds. In high-information elections, the figure is roughly 14 percent for candidates on both the left and right.

    Since conservative voters are less likely to seek information it makes sense they rely on what they consider physical attractiveness, for example, whiteness, maleness etc.

    “Beauty” is only skin deep, but Republican ugly goes clean to the bone (see Matt Gaetz).

  4. Elwood P. Dowd says:

    Combatting discrimination (what the con cult defines as FREEDOM) has always been a low priority for conservative cultists.

    Black women should all be forced to shave their heads and wear Joni Ernst helmet wigs. Likewise for Black men and DonJon toupees. Young Black men should be made to wear their hair like Eric tRump.

    • Dana says:

      People have every right to wear their hair any way they can; it’s none of my business.

      Unless, of course, they choose to interact with me. If so, I have every right to take whatever decisions I need to take based on whatever criteria I wish. And yes, if someone interacts with me, and he looks like a clown, I’m going to take my decisions based at least in part on the fact that he is a clown.

      I know, I know: you think it’s horrible, but people often present a lot more information about themselves than they think they do. I don’t need to see someone’s transcripts; I can tell if he’s an intelligent person just by his grammar. If I have a choice between two candidates, and one is wearing a wedding ring, that presents me with information I would find useful, and a point on which I might base a decision.

      If two people show up for an interview, one is dressed as though he is ready to go to work, and the other is not, that’s a point of information I will consider. And yes, if one candidate shows up with Bantu knots and another with normal hair, I will consider that a point of actionable information.

      If you are hiring someone, your only goal should be selecting the best candidate for the good of the company.

      dOwd, where on earth do you come up with shit like that? Is your heart so black and your brain so addled you actually believe “the con cult”, “conservative cultists”, and such think like that? Or are you just trying in your own feeble way to insult half of America cause they do mean Tweets?

      Not wanting to hire people who look ridiculous and do not represent your brand or the type of public image you want is perfectly reasonable in business. One can’t have a Hooters full of flat chested men and shouldn’t be forced to. Of course you would be on the side of the bitches that want everybody to acquiesce to their petty desires because any opinion other than their own MUST be stomped out. Tyrants, dictators, pigs and swine. You are all the same.

      Freedom means you have to tolerate things ya don’t like dOwd. And just like a business may want the employees to conform to the public image they want to project, the employee has neither the “right” to work there not the obligation. He can seek employment elsewhere. But all you pigs have is your hammer and we poor working stiffs are your nails.

      P.S. How come you never break into tears when whites are barred from black schools, events etcetera? Or is racism a one way street with you White haters?

      We are so gonna trounce you assholes come November and you have no one to blame but yourselves and your White/American/Christian/Jewish selves. FJB.

      • Elwood P. Dowd says:


        OMG yes, there’s a conservative cult! We’re surprised you even challenge that. The cult is a minority within the minority GOP, but it’s real.

        Cultists are devoted to DonJon, and authoritarianism, ‘feel’ that DonJon won the election, ‘feel’ that the Covid pandemic is a hoax, ‘feel’ that global warming is a hoax/scam, ‘feel’ that scientists are all part of a lib plot that includes the ‘Deep State’, ‘Big Pharma’, ‘Big Religion’, ‘Big Media’, are ‘skeptical’ of all not told them by their leader(s), fail to understand what American freedom actually means – they are motivated by just two triggers – 1) their chosen leader and 2) their opposition to anything ‘the other’ says. “Masks don’t work – they’re face diapers!” “Covid vaccines don’t work – they have luciferase tracking in them!” “It’s all about CONTROL!! to condition Americans for the Great Reset, the One World Order or whatever!!”

        So yeah, it’s a cult.

        Brand0 typed: Freedom means you have to tolerate things ya don’t like

        Really? We have to tolerate discrimination?

        Don’t get us wrong Bl0nd0, companies in the U.S. are able to hire and fire at will except for limited circumstances – race, religion, sex etc. We know, we know that interferes with your freedom to live in a world where no one’s presence can offend you, but that’s the hazard of living in a diverse America.

        You prefer an America where Black and brown men and women emulate middle American whites rather than reflect their own lives and experiences. You’re free to go out of your way to avoid those whom you dislike.

        I don’t like country music, cowboy hats on non-cowboys, tattoos, poseurs in pickup trucks or piercings. I don’t mean to denigrate country music, and for those that like country music, ‘denigrate’ means ‘put down’. (H/T to Bob Newhart).

        • L.G.Brandon!, L.G.Brandon! says:

          dOwd: “Really? We have to tolerate discrimination?”

          Only if you want to have freedom of association. Freedom of speech. Freedom of assembly. Which by what you’ve commented here you don’t. Our ability to pick and choose who we want to associate with, work with and live with is nobody else’ business but our own. I’m sorry you don’t like it but frankly, fuk you. You don’t get to pick my partners, my employees, my tenants or my lovers. I do. Or at least I do in a free country. You seem to demand everyone bow to your sense of political correctness. I don’t know why. You want me and everyone else to live under your desired will whether we like it or not. Scratch a leftist and there’s a fascist underneath as the saying goes.

          dOwd: “We know, we know that interferes with your freedom to live in a world where no one’s presence can offend you, but that’s the hazard of living in a diverse America.”

          Actually, you don’t know. You are a complete ignoramus. I didn’t say ANYTHING about a person’s presence only fascists like you trying to force people like me to comply with your “diverse America”. Our motto is “E Pluribus Unum”. Not “Het assholes, let’s diversify and end our nation”. We are supposed to be united as Americans and not forced into YOUR idea of “diversify”. Just like we are supposed to share equality not your fantasy of equity. America has always been diversified and only when assholes like you came about did it become divided. Same Latin root, different outcome.

          There shouldn’t be a “hazard” of living in a diverse America as long as it’s a free America where we can pick and choose as free men our own idea of diversity.

          dOwd: ” You prefer an America where Black and brown men and women emulate middle American whites rather than reflect their own lives and experiences. You’re free to go out of your way to avoid those whom you dislike.”

          First of all don’t presume to tell me or the rest of us what we “prefer” you pompous piece of shit, you have no clue. Second, what is wrong with emulating (that means copying for those morons in St. Louis), middle America Whites? Something wrong with emulating the most successful group of people in any nation in history? Why do you think aliens want to come here to “emulate” the ghetto coons? You seem to want to change the color of America because you hate what you are. Well, the rest of us are proud of what we are. White Lives Matter.

          Third, you seem to want to make it impossible for me and anyone else to avoid anyone we don’t like and we shouldn’t be forced out of our way to do it. It should be available like any other free choice a free person makes. If one has the desire, the ability and the finances to do something he wants he should be free to do it without being ridiculed (that means made fun of for those in the Midwest) or penalized.

          I don’t think you have to go out of your way to avoid the thinks you listed. In fact I would bet more often than not you’d have to seek them out. As it should be since you’re a free man which is more than you would grant us if you had the power.

          If our government is to the point where they can regulate hair like North Korea does then we have more of a problem than inflation and the Ukraine from Brandon. He’s now a dictator.

          You have a real problem trying to force everyone to conform to your desire. You need to grow up and recognize people everywhere just need to be free.

            Perhaps Brand0 should read the proposal.

            Reported to House, Part I (02/25/2022)
            Creating a Respectful and Open World for Natural Hair Act of 2021 or the CROWN Act of 2021

            This bill prohibits discrimination based on a person’s hair texture or hairstyle if that style or texture is commonly associated with a particular race or national origin. Specifically, the bill prohibits this type of discrimination against those participating in federally assisted programs, housing programs, public accommodations, and employment.

            Persons shall not be deprived of equal rights under the law and shall not be subjected to prohibited practices based on their hair texture or style.

            The proposed law doesn’t force you to associate with those you slur as “ghetto coons” but does prohibit discrimination in the workplace and in public accommodations. You can still avoid movie theaters where you might be forced to breathe the same air as “ghetto coons”. You can still avoid restaurants where you might be served by a female “ghetto coon”.

            We understand your desire that all Americans look and act as you do. Shudder at that thought.

  5. STW says:

    My favorite part about this stupid bill is that initial reports pictured the bill’s sponsor wearing a hair style and color, probably a wig, that would have looked at home on a white suburban housewife. Later reports, naturally, removed that offending image and showed women with corn roes. Apparently, looking stupid is not good to attract voters.

  6. tdothen says:

    Ok,I gotta ask…

    Do they come up with the acronym first and the find some ridiculous idea to fit it, or is it the other way around?

  7. L.G.Brandon!, L.G.Brandon! says:

    I knew my use of the slur “ghetto coons” would make your head explode. MISSION ACCOMPLISHED! Thank you, thank you, thank you. Typical leftist. You miss the entire point because you are fixated on a detail of no importance. LOL

    But it is good you realized you could not refute my points so instead went into leftist diatribe mode. Figures. LOL

    dOwd: “We understand your desire that all Americans look and act as you do. Shudder at that thought.”

    Again, you presume to “understand my/our desires”. No you don’t. You don’t even consider our desires as they mean nothing to you. You only think of us as tax generators, deplorables, bitter clingers and non-essential workers. You have no commonality with your fellow Americans unless they comply with your demands, rules and mandates and even then would be just as happy if we were forbidden to speak. That’s why you have no concerns over the crushing of free speech on the social media and the complete blackout of all non-approved ideas, opinions and speech in the media. To people like you disagreement or other opinions = misinformation and/or treason.

    You only care about forcing other people to acquiesce (that mean comply for those of you in St. Louie) to your demands on culture, history, society and civilization none of which include the accomplishments of people other than your chosen victims and potential voters.

    That’s why you hate the constitution. It protects us from people like you who want to determine our rights to free speech, assembly, and all the rest of those old dead White Christian ideas that so deeply infuriate you and your ghetto coons.

    FJB. People like you dOwd are the reason your party is gonna get an ass kickin’ in November. And you deserve it. In SPADES (Pun intended). LOL
